Hi guys,

I would like to ask is it possible to add Incoming Serial Port to the bluetooth connection on the PC dongle.

Currently I'm using a generic bluetooth dongle with bluesoleil.

The problem is that the bluesoleil only have 2 incoming serial port which is SerialPortA (COM7) and SerialPortB (COM8).

Is there a way to configure the bluesoleil to have more incoming serial port so that I can have multiple bluetooth devices connect to the PC throught SPP.

Please help me is anyone know if this is possible.

I found the solution for this problem. Toshiba Bluetooth stack has this function that allows you to create more incoming virtual serial port.

I'm currently using the Generic Bluetooth Dongle, but it seems like not stable. Every time I start my pc, I need to run the Hyper Terminal once for the ports I want to use, close it then run my application.

If not, my application can't read any data from the serial port. Anyone know how to solve this problem ?
